Our Little Secret by Roz Nay

5-stars

Our Little Secret was a page-turner and a brilliant read. I seriously never got bored reading it. The chapters are short and conclude in such an enticing manner that I could have read the entire book in one sitting if I’d had the time.

It begins in a police interrogation room with a Detective Novak questioning his detainee, Angela Petitjean (pronounced Peti-SHON), about the disappearance of a woman named Saskia. Angela informs the detective that she doesn’t have any information regarding Saskia’s whereabouts, but proceeds to tell him all about HP, who appears to have been her childhood best friend and soul mate. Through Angela’s account of her relationship with HP, we learn about her formative years; including her life at home with her parents, her time away at a prestigious University, and how things start to spiral downward in her life, which is when Saskia’s identity is revealed. All of these revelations take place in that interrogation room. I kept wondering if Angela was a reliable narrator. Was I justified in taking pity on her? Who was being deceitful? Who betrayed whom? These were some of the questions I kept asking myself as I read Our Little Secret.

Since I don’t want to give anything away accidentally, let’s just say this is psychological suspense at its finest; thrilling and well-written with characters that kept me questioning my opinions of them.

The ending had me like…

Very highly recommended.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press, for a complimentary ARC of Our Little Secret. In exchange I have provided an honest review.

Has anyone read Our Little Secret? What did you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Have a lovely day, okay? ☺

    • Thanks. I loved this book, Mischenko. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after I’d read it. It was a page turner for me. Some didn’t really care for it, but because I read it as a suspense novel and not a thriller, I thought it was perfectly done. 😊

  1. Just went back to reread your review again. It’s funny how we have different reactions to parts of the book but I agree it was a strong plot and easy read. The trio had me going for a long time near the end. I was like… WHO are these people!?!? Lol

    • I felt that this one was more psychological suspense. It didn’t have that consistent creepiness factor that many thrillers have. It just made you wonder who was telling the truth—which characters were trustworthy. I thought it was very well written. Of course since there are teens involved there’s language. I could have done without that. Everything else was brilliant in my lil’ ole humble opinion.
